Our business has been in operation since 1994 so serving the area fro 25yrs. Our fleet is made up of 2016-2019 model year units. Rental business is greatly about preparation, following processes & procedures, then making sure customers have a good experience. Certainly a fun place to work But We Do Work Here. This is a great opportunity to learn lots and work around the water. If you have background operating boats or watercraft on the water will be very helpful.

Two staff we retain year round - majority of staff hired will be full time seasonal June thru Sept. We prefer to hire employees that have the ability to come back multiple seasons when possible.

When not actively Renting we do Prep work. So preparation to rent includes cleaning, photographing, maintenance, organization, and taking care of equipment. Good common sense and attention to the details is what we are seeking. This job is very diverse. One moment you are on the phone with customers, next driving pwc around to the boat launch, then launching customers in a boat, and repairing a dock all before lunch time. Need to use time well and be able multi-task.
